An overview of our vision
The main goal of this work is to edify the Church, the bride of Christ, as she sings to the glory of our Creator, our God. This is done by developing local congregations’ capacity for singing together and by sharing a cappella music that is within their reach.
Spiritual music, music written for the Church to use, is a big part of my life. I have dedicated much of my activity to composing works that draw primarily on scripture for their text and inspiration. Utilizing contemporary language, rather than the archaic Russian texts of the Orthodox tradition, the lyrics are both comprehensible and doctrinally-sound.
This allows those singing and hearing to more easily understand God’s inspired Word and to consider the message that the music is reinforcing. These songs weren’t written for stage performance; this music is designed foremost to be a part of the worship offered by a congregation. Though they inevitably embody my feelings and ideas as evoked by stories and images found in the Bible, by holding close to Scripture these songs keep from becoming a demonstration of the religious beliefs of any one person or of a particular denomination.
- There is no one else in the Churches of Christ from abroad with Konstantin's accomplishments.
Darryl Tippens, Provost, Pepperdine University
- The music is quality - a cut above much contemporary Christian music being written in the U.S… We can use such quality hymns in our churches throughout the globe.
Tom Olbricht, Founder of the Christian Scholars' Conference
- Konstantin's hymns are spiritual and deep. May churches in America learn from and imitate his music.
Everett Ferguson, Distinguished Scholar in Residence, Abilene Christian University
- Konstantin's music reveals and meets a deep and—for the most part—unexpressed need for reflective, meditative music in worship.
Tom Gosser, Florence Church of Christ, Tuscumbia, Alabama
